I thought I would get back to being more accountable on the blog with food and exercise, not every day, but more than I have been. So here is today. My general goal is around 1500 calories per day give or take.
Breakfast was oatbran cooked with a mashed banana, egg whites and topped with 1 tbsp of Nutella.
With my coffee, 480 calories. A lot of times, I have almond milk in my coffee, but decided to go back to milk instead. This meant having less of the topping on the oatbran to keep the calories the same. I usually have about a cup of milk divided between my 3 cups of coffee.
Interestingly enough, this breakfast lasted me until lunch. Was it the milk?? Curious.
Speaking of lunch, that was 2% Fage with apple/cranbery topping:
I am really busy at work now. This new account I am on is busy. We have to work on the payment for it so I get compensated enough. They sort of threw a number in the air to the client with room to wiggle, and we’re going to have to wiggle 😀 The days go by really fast, now.
Afternoon snack – latte with a little honey drizzle and some dried pineapple (measured half serving)
Dinner was pretty standard. 5 oz potato with a wedge of laughing cow cheese and topped with BBQ chicken. Plus broccoli for a change 😉
About 415 calories.
I took all the pictures on my phone. I really notice a different between the phone and my Rebel. I used to think my phone took great pictures, which it does, but the camera is such a step up. Lori, remember to use your camera for these pictures…
Exercise for today was a 25 minute walk and some strength training:
- Squats – 3 sets of 10
- Dumbbell rows – 3 sets of 10
- Stiff-legged deadlift – 3 sets of 10
- Dumbbell shoulder press – 3 sets of 10
- Reverse fly – 3 sets of 10
- Dumbbell chest press – 3 sets of 10
- Crunches – 3 sets of 15
That leaves me about 100 calories to have a snack with tonight at the coffee shop. Likely a decaf drink and a few bites of something John gets. We have a library/coffee date tonight. 😀
